Welcome to the belly of the beast, Central Hall at the Consumer Electronics Show. Some 140,000 people will be making their way through this part of the Convention Center. That's 280,000 feet all looking to step on mine.
HDTV was everywhere in droves, from Casio to Sharp LCDs and Panasonic's inexplainable insistence on sticking with plasma technology. As if to emphasize the point, the Japanese electronics giant displayed the world's largest plasma TV, at 150 inches and probably close to a quarter ton in weight. I'd hate to be pat of the crew that has to pack it up.
